I thought they went into the city to make themselves harder to locate and attack to buy time for the choppers to arrive. I don't think the innocent civilians would have been too thrilled by a plan like this...and wasn't the cube supposed to be more easy to find once it left the shielding of the dam that had helped to keep it hidden for so long?
But yeah, Bay seems to love attack scenes that give him an excuse to have computer generated bits an pieces zipping through the air around people.
Now that's just messed up. You can't just blow shit up because you like to see shit blown up. There's gotta be a least a rational excuse for it to happen. Or it'll just be some mindless action crap that give critiques reason to diss the movie.
Two movies come to mind, Armagedon and The Rock. Bay was the director on both. If you've watched those, then you know both are heavy on stunts and special effects. The script can be good or bad, but if action scenes in the story provide an opening the director can choose to go heavy or light on the computer generated effects as a matter of his or her "artistic vision" for the film. It's also a flexible area where production costs can be trimmed in order to bring a film in under budget.
daym Megan Fox and that Aussie chick, if i had a moment or 2 with them
Sometimes it was difficult to tell which robot was fighting which.
Can anyone else relate?
Are you happy? I am happy.
megan fox is hot
WHOOOO I loved it! Reminds me of all the times when I used to watch the (rather basic) cartoons years ago! Director Mike sure did make everyone think it'll go crappy with that 1st trailer lols - all the robots sure do look cool in that alien-like way and it was also a smart move not to make any shrinking transformers (megatron -> tiny-gun-mode-that-puny-human-can-wield in real life would look too unrealistic)
LOVE THIS MOVIE! I love the robots and the graphics. I also love the part where they transform into a robot or an object.
